I'd have liked to see Mollie and Alexandra both go, but at least I got half my wish.  I think the best four of the remaining five have gone through.  Looking forward to the show dances next week.

Mollie was certainly the weakest performer this evening, and overall I think she hasn't progressed as far as the others.  For me it's not so much hoping she goes as wanting all the others to stay.  I still can't take to Alexandra but she did dance well.

 If it's racist when 'ethnic origin' people are eliminated it will definitely be sexist if Joe is eliminated as that will leave all wimmin in the final.  Not fair, not fair.

Pleased that common sense has prevailed, so glad I signed the petition - it shows that sometimes decision makers listen to Joe public.

 Believe that any you'll believe anything.  The study by the RHS may well have had an effect but I doubt very much that a public petition did.

I read on-line today that Alexandra Burke is whingeing that everybody hates her, because she'd been in the dance-off twice.  No, people vote for the people they want to stay in and, for whatever reason, the majority obviously like others more than they like her.  That is not the same as people hating or even disliking her.  She needs to adopt a more positive outlook - she wasn't in the dance-off in the previous 9 weeks!

If I'm honest, what gets on my wick with her is her gushing about everything - "Huge honour to be the final dancer" for example - give me a break.  Somebody has to go on first and somebody has to go on last.

Mention was made on the results show about the number of hours Molly has put in.  I can't say I like her particularly, but nobody can doubt the commitment she has shown.  In the early series they did mention, at various stages of the series, how many hours training each contestant had put in.  Maybe that was seen as counterproductive with people voting for those who had done most rather than the best dancers, I don't know.

I didn't watch the first few weeks, I never have done, but from what I've seen as least one of the poorer dancers ends up in the dance off each week and tends to get voted off.  There was one exception to that a few weeks ago when Aston was voted off.

I don't think it's a bad thing for a 'better' dancer to be in the dance off as it stops them getting complacent.

Wonderful!  What took him so long?

 I very much doubt if he has set it up and is running it himself.  I suspect other commitments have had higher priority than the website over the years and now he's playing catchup a bit.
